We have a single family home with 200 amp service. One main breaker inside the house.
We needed a 220v 40amp power supply outside. Instead of running a circuit from our main breaker, he connected a Main lug only panel w/ 6 breaker spaces to the the source power within the meter can. He pulled the meter to do this, and it IS connected on the correct side of the meter. Can the main lugs in the meter can be double tapped like this and still be within code?
Additional information: there is no main disconnect for the main panel (or the new MLO panel) outside at the meter. There is no shutoff breaker at the MLO panel, but I believe that is standard.
No permit was pulled but part of the terms were that all work would be done within NEC & local code.
